Buying A Ready To Move In Cottage

There is no right or wrong answer when choosing between building your new cottage or buying a "Ready To Move In Cottage" (commonly referred to as an immediate possession), it  really depends on your needs, timing and financial situation.

Here are 4 advantages to buying a cottage that is completed or near completion:

1. Immediate Possession

You don't have to wait to move in! If you are on a time schedule, buying a "Ready To Move In Cottage", can be the perfect solution. Typical on-site builds can take anywhere from 6 – 12 months. An immediate possession cottage is completed or nearly completed, so once you sign the paperwork, you can pack your bags and start enjoying your new cottage sooner.

2. Cost Control

Because the cottage home is finished or near completion, there are fewer, if any financial surprises. What you see is what you get. You know what the costs are going to be upfront. When you opt to build a cottage, you bear the risk of delays beyond the control of the builder (for example, weather, trades, etc.) which could affect your final price.

3. Convenience

When you buy a "Ready To Move In Cottage", building decisions have already been made. A completed cottage eliminates the need for planning, design and finishing selections, and communication with various suppliers. It's all been taken care of, all you have to do is take possession.

4. Quality Control

In a completed cottage, you are able to see the quality and craftsmanship that has gone into the cottage home, firsthand. It's ready for you to vet... there are no surprises!
